Bump to Cute Little Baby.

It’s the most wonderful news to hear when your friends are expecting. So when the father to be emailed me the great news back in December, I was truly thrilled for them. I’m so happy I got to capture both the pregnancy and their gorgeous son at his newborn stage. For me, it was just great to see both J&R since the last time I saw them was when we gave them their wedding pics.

I love how they decided to do their maternity shoot at their home as I agree with the saying “home is where the heart is”. We worked around their house and just basically had some fun with the session. Towards the end of our shoot, I loved the fact that we got to get in some snow pics, which properly represented their winter pregnancy and our crazy vortex this year.

Now fast forward a few weeks and here comes this gorgeous little dude. What was perfect about this shoot was that all of the family was over that day and everyone got a chance to be in a picture with the star player. Baby M was picture perfect for the shoot and the Mom and Dad looked great too. To my friends J&R, loved seeing you guys and thank you for letting me capture these precious life stages in your lives. Both Gi and I are thrilled that you guys are parents. Here are some pics from our session.

Gorgeous Family of Three

What I find pretty crazy about this family is how good looking they are. I mean not only was the couple really good looking but their mom, sister and her sister’s husband has the same model like good looks. I know this first hand as I was lucky enough to capture both their families. Whatever happened to the norm where the wife is gorgeous and the husband has to over compensate with having tons of camera gear and charm =)

A&M and their beautiful baby L were a blast to capture. Their son is super cute as you’ll see in the pics and parenting seems so natural for this couple. We started off capturing some portraits of baby L and worked our way around their new home. I loved the fact that they all bundled up and we got a chance to snap a few pics outside to reflect our winter shoot.

I want to sincerely thank A&M for inviting me over to capture these precious pics of their son at this cute life stage. Here are a handful of pics from our session.

Afternoon at the ROM // Maternity Shoot

We’ve been really busy the past few months, which is great but I’ve been totally ignoring our blog with these proud updates I want to show. So when S&N contacted me to capture her at a beautiful stage in her pregnancy, I suggested we do this indoors and chose the ROM. On a side note, I have grown to love when clients ask us to capture this lifestage in their pregnancy. I really think it’s such a beautiful change in a mom to be’s body and most importantly it’s such a sweet lifestage which leads to something so precious.

We all met at the ROM got to know each other while lining up to get our tickets, since it was jam packed that day. Right off the bat just chatting with them, I got a sense that they are such good peoples which made our shoot easy breezy and fun. So the game plan was, we walk around and try to find spots that were the least busy and use the cool architecture of the ROM. To my new friends, I hope you guys are keeping well and can’t wait to meet your little one for their first photo shoot. I also want to sincerely thank S’s cousin Opal for giving the warm intro / referral - merci sister!
Like always, I’ll let the pics tell the story of the day.
